This past weekend our U12, U16 and U19 Club Teams traveled to Lancaster, PA to play in a tournament at Spooky Nook! Spooky Nook is the home of our USA Women’s Olympic Field Hockey Team, so it was exciting to have the opportunity to play where Olympians practice and play every day!
All of our teams arrived at the Nook excited to play in another tournament! While all of our teams played well, two teams in particular played to win! Our U16 White and Green Teams dominated in their respective pools! These two teams were an unstoppable force making it hard for opponents to even compete against them.
U16 White stepped up their game! The players played with intelligence, heart and gave it all they had. In the end, they were tied for 1st place and the only reason they finished in 2nd place was because of goal differentials.
U16 Green came out on top! Not only was this team 4 – 0, but they crushed their opponents with skill, speed and intensity. Even though opponents tried to score and win, our goalie didn’t allow any goals to be scored against her!! This team climbed to the top and won their pool!Our coaches are so proud of all of our players. We love when our players display our core values: Positive, Dedicated, Team First and Fun! As we travel to tournaments, it really shows that field hockey is our true passion here at Koa.
